Calculator Upgrade: Now for Pad-Style Snow Guards, too!

Late last week we launched our improved Online Project Calculator and we wanted you to be among the first to know about it! We are confident that you’ll appreciate the changes/additions to the calculator that will make things much faster and easier for you, our cherished clients.

YOU are what is most important to us here at Alpine SnowGuards, so we’ve decided to streamline our Online Project Calculator to now include pad-style snow guards! See, up until last week, we had a completely separate calculator which had been designed specifically for pad-style snow guards. The “old” calculator was a bit archaic, in that it was built even back before we launched our new website in the summer of 2014.

The integration of pad-style snow guards into the pipe-style Online Project Calculator will have you wondering how you ever lived without it!

Below are the attributes that we think will keep/make our clients the most happy (remember how I said YOU are what is most important to us? We wouldn’t be here with you, and we know that, and we appreciate that immensely).

Anytime Convenience

Sign In or Sign Up any time that it’s convenient for you. Two O’Clock in the morning on a Saturday? No biggy, we’ve got you covered. Vacationing in Barcelona and need real-time estimates? No problem! You can get what you’re looking for, anywhere, any time (and you can also note that I am JEALOUS ☼)

Speed & Ease of Use

The calculator is also fast and easy to use, so you won’t find yourself frustrated as you enter your project-specific information. You will be walked through each step – all you need to do is supply the information.


You have the ability to store AND recall your projects any time, all while comparing multiple products. Ten jobs going on at the same time, enter each, and go back to each as needed.

FREE Recommended Layouts

Who says you can’t get anything for free anymore? Not us!

We’re happy to provide you with a free recommended layout, generated from the information you enter into the calculator.

Printable Estimates

Your printable estimate(s) will include a breakdown of all of the parts and components, with quantities, pricing information (price breakdown of each component, as well as an overall price), specific system information, and a bill of materials (BOM), so you know exactly what you’re looking at.

Pretty great, right? We think so, too.

We even have a tutorial that was created by our ridiculously talented Animator, Matt. This guy’s a  PHENOM! Check it out.

Oh! And before I forget to mention it, barrel roof selections are now available and are automatically calculated!

As if all of this isn’t  thrilling enough, stay tuned for even more upgrades this summer. Upgrades that will knock your socks off, like:

  • Powder coating option – you’ll enjoy powder coating pricing at your fingertips
  • Ice Flag configurator – this will allow you to select ice flags to add to each roof area as needed/wanted.
  • Linear foot pricing – this will be available for both pipe-style and fence-style systems.

Part of me wants to yell loudly, “But wait! There’s more!” – but this isn’t an infomercial, and I won’t be sending you a “second set for free <just pay additional processing & handling>”.

I guess it comes down to me being so excited for all of the new upgrades that I can barely stand it. Things like this make me so appreciative that I’m the resident blogger here at Alpine SnowGuards. It’s an honor to be the one who gets to share all of our updates with you. I mean, does it get better than that?? Not for me, it doesn’t.

Am I easily amused? Possibly.

But more accurately, I’m proud to be a part of Alpine’s continued growth, especially with clients as great as you all!

Thank you, as always, for taking the time to read what we’re up to. And like I said, stay tuned for more upgrades!
